Senior Synthesis

2023 Senior Synthesis Talks

Given by our Math Majors the final quarter of their senior year - usually in the spring, they culminate their math studies by presenting on topics that are of special interest to them or about which they have done in-depth research. This spring these are scheduled to be held Tuesdays at 1:30pm in PIGT 308 and Thursdays at 3:45pm in Bannan 407, May 4th thru May 18th. Check this page for dates and times, as well as specifics about who will be speaking and what their subjects will be. Should you have any questions, you may email Professor David Neel.
